The instant messaging platform from Facebook (now Meta) is officially dropping support for old iPhone models running on iOS 10 or iOS 11 and asking users to upgrade their iPhones to the latest version of the OS.

Here’s how to get WhatsApp on iOS 10 and iOS 11 devices:

  1. Open the Settings app on the iPhone
  2. Tap on the General option
  3. Now tap on the Software update
